The cajun chicken brings the heat and the fresh mango flavor puts out the flames before they get too intense for your taste buds.

  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon seeded and minced Thai chili pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced red bell pepper

To make mango salsa, in a small bowl, combine mango, lime juice, vinegar and peppers.  Chill for 1 hour.  Toss scallops and Cajun seasoning together.  In a medium skillet, melt butter and sauté scallops for 4-5 minutes.  Spoon 1 rounded teaspoon (about 3) of scallops into each phyllo shell.  Bake in preheated 350ºF oven for 5 minutes.  Garnish with 1 teaspoon of mango salsa.  Serve warm.
